I was somewhat skeptical ordering a large rug sight-unseen on-line. However, I was not disappointed! This rug is beautiful - the colors are vibrant and look as pictured on the site. It does not appear to be shedding much, which has been consistently mentioned with all wool rugs I am very pleased with my purchase and love the way the rug pulls our family room together - the room has become a very warm and cozy place! Also shipping was very fast - I ordered at 10:30 pm on a Friday - the rug arrived Tuesday! I have been searching for the perfect rug for a long time - this by far is the highest quality rug for the money that I have seen. I need several smaller additional rugs - you can bet that I'll be shopping Overstock again!
